I am working my first sweater (the Roosevelt Cardigan, if anyone has the Fall 2014 Interweave Knits). I have an issue reading the pattern for the Right Sleeve.
I have worked up the sleeve past the cuff and done the first increase round. After the first increase round, I am not sure I understand the pattern. I will back up to the last round of the cuff and give you the instructions through where I am confused.
Next rnd - K20, p1, work 8 sts in patt, p1, knit to end.
Inc rnd - K1, M1L, work in patt to last st, M1R, k1 - 2 sts inc’d.
(Here’s where I am unsure) Rep Inc rnd every 10th rnd 5 more times then every 8th rnd 4 times - 70 sts. Work even until piece measures 18.5" from CO, ending with an even numbered chart row.
So, after the Inc rnd I just did, should I go back to the pattern above (K20, p1, work 8, p1, knit), but just add one knit to each side? Or do I do the pattern from the inc rnd but only do the increase on the 10th then 8th rounds? The reason I think it’s the first option is because the sleeves are not cabled all the way around but only have a single cable up the middle of the sleeve and it seems to me that if I kept the pattern from the inc rnds I would be cabling all around.
I hope this makes some sense, if not I can post in some pictures.
Any help sorting this out would be great, thanks so much!
